Just look how happy they are together. He now begs to ride her. They are a good team. She only goes as fast as he asks her to go. They trust each other. A horse like this is hard to find and will never leave our house. She may not be the world's most beautiful thoroughbred, but she sure is good to my cowpokes.
This even is the most fun. It is called Flags. You have two barrels at the end of the arena with buckets on top of them. You ride your horse as fast as you can and drop a "flag" (a small piece of pvc pipe) in one bucket and run to the next barrel. There you grab another "flag" and run as fast as you can home (back to the in gate). This is a timed event. A good time is done in 9 seconds. Mr. Cowboy can do it on Kenny, the pony, in 10 seconds. Wow, that is fast. Big Cowpoke here on Pearl does it in about 25 seconds. They are doing great!!!
Here is Little Cowpoke having his go at the clover leaf barrels. He needs help from Mr. Cowboy. Little Cowpoke's hands cannot reach the reins. If you look close you can see the fashionable belt around Little Cowpoke's waist. That is his "Wienk" a.k.a Blanket". When it is time for the barrels it is also time for Little Cowpokes to take a nap. He insisted on having it with him. Mr. Cowboy tied it there so it wouldn't fall. Little Cowpoke loves to go fast!!!
Speaking of fast!! Go Mr. Cowboy Go!!! This is the horse Fancy. She was out there for the first time ever. She was Mr. Cowboy's back up ride because Lady was sick. Fancy gave it her all. They really did well. Mr. Cowboy likes to go fast!!! The need for speed.
Now for some scrapbooking. We are doing an altered/collage challenge over at Oscraps. I am not really good at anything altered. So I went for the collage route. It was a hard page for me. I normally like lots of pictures on a page, but not this one. It is not one of my most favorite pages. But it works. So here it is.
Now this is a serious horse. He goes fast. His rider is The Pink Lady. That is saddle winning material. They are an awesome team. This is where we hope to have Lady, the horse, running next year. It should be a good competition.
You can find the credits and leave some love, if you like, Here!! I am still semi new in the digi scrap world. I have only been doing it for about six months now. One thing it has done is made me totally obsessed with taking pictures. I love it. I really want a new camera!! I Nikon!! Maybe for Christmas or my birthday!! Or maybe just in my dreams!!
